Introducing the Auterion Vision Kit S: Enhancing Skynode GX’s Capabilities in Computer Vision

November 17, 2023

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Auterion Vision Kit S, an optional companion for Skynode GX, the fully integrated flight controller and mission computer with U.S. Government certifications. This kit will provide a starting point for developers to leverage the Auterion all-in-one autonomy platform and create computer vision applications, such as obstacle detection and avoidance, visual inertial odometry (VIO), precision landing, QR detection, or targeting. 

Applications developed with the Vision Kit S are already fielded and operating in real-world scenarios, such as automated safe precision landing for deliveries.

With the Auterion Vision Kit S, users can seamlessly integrate computer vision capabilities into their robotics operations. The process is simple and hassle-free – just plug the USB cable into Skynode GX, and a pre-installed driver will connect the camera to Skynode GX automatically. Developers, whether seasoned or new to computer vision, can access the developer kit to build their own applications.

The Auterion Vision Kit S is especially valuable in situations where the camera’s vision serves as the primary navigation for the system, such as in GPS-denied environments. The kit empowers users to leverage the potential of Skynode GX as an all-in-one platform for computer navigation, an area that the industry is increasingly focusing on.

To ensure a smooth development experience, we offer software development kits (SDKs) and a sample app that developers can use as a reference while building their own applications.

With the launch of the Auterion Vision Kit S, we are empowering developers and robotics enthusiasts to push the boundaries of what can be accomplished with computer vision in drone operations. When combined with Skynode GX, the kit offers new capabilities for increased situational awareness, improved obstacle avoidance, and precise navigation.

Join us in embracing this exciting technology and discover the endless possibilities of the Auterion Vision Kit S.

The kit is available for you to order now, get in touch with our BD team.
